Chris Christie: A Republican without a stooooopid party
Right after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced he would expand Medicaid under the new federal health law, TeaScrotum Party Nation opined in a tweet: “Liberal jello blob Chris Christie thanks Obama by expanding Obamacare to NJ.” That was followed by a #liberalsellout hashtag.
Christie’s decision came amid news that he would not be invited to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference next month. National Review reported some of the reasoning: He has a “limited future” in the stooooopid party. Because he supports gun control, he’s not really a conservative.
Why stop there? He praised President Obama for his Hurricane Sandy performance. He thinks climate change is real. Also he has a man crush on Bruce Springsteen, the Democrats' go-to entertainer to fire up crowds before elections. Where conservatives and Christie are concerned, Medicaid is just one more deal breaker in a series.
Christie even borrowed Democratic rhetoric in explaining his Medicaid decision. He said he was “putting people first” – a line that was a Bill Clinton trademark and the title of his campaign book.
Meanwhile, Johnyy McCranky's campaign manager Steve Schmidt on CPAC:
“Look, this CPAC convention is increasingly the Star Wars bar scene of the conservative movement. I mean all that’s missing at that convention is a couple of Wookiees,”
Keep on being stooooopid, scrotes, it's RILLY workin' for ya!
